    Personal crusade eh? Pointing out Farcry 1 is different some how connotes a personal crusade? That is a bit... hyperbolic. The rest of your post is pure projection.

    However... that's fine, put me on ignore. Safe spaces are better that way. Can't have that pesky counter data getting in the way. :D

    No idea, but I'm torn between it being either due to wearing tight underpants or being held at gun point. On a more serious note, could be the choice and distance in mic. Some people get like that when they have to project loudly.

    I love the original Farcry and Farcry 3 is one of my favorite games.  I could not get into 4 that much and I never tried primal.  I will  be ordering the gold edition of 5 though.  I love the setting and seems like the villians will be good.  I have been looking forward to it since it has been announced.



    Farcry 4 was by far my favorite, mostly for the characterization, especially of the villain. He's this metro-sexual drug-kingpin that may or may not really want you dead, and radios you to randomly chit chat while your off doing missions.

    I especially love how that, in the very beginning, when he takes off your blindfold for dinner, but then leaves and asks you to just wait a little while and he will be right back- if you actually do just wait for some time, instead of just naturally moving around and exploring as you do in video games, he comes back and helps you succeed in your mission and the game ends. That is too funny to me. Plus there's this extremely weird psychedelic part in a cave with this shadow creatures that happens late in the game. It's unlike most of the game and tripped me out.

    Is it like the weird psychedelic part in Far Cry 3?

    I really wish someone who has had access to it, would showcase the stealth aspect of the game. Can you stealth in and takedown them quietly... if so, showcase it damnit. We keep seeing all these guns a blazing videos. Show something different!


    The Far Cry series has always featured stealth gameplay as well as guns blazing style and a cross in between. You can play anyway you want to. That is one of the beauties of the their games. 



    I know that. I've played basically all of them but I want to see it showcased in these videos since its a new Far Cry title. Are the animations exactly the same as they've been the last few Far cry games or have they evolved/updated the takedown animations, is what I want to see/hear about.

    What I want to know more than anything is how is it that these guys that review games, so are incredibly bad at them? I mean most reviewers I see play a game in their review, are horrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible at playing them.



    On a side note, why don't any of these ppl who review this game showcase the hand to hand combat, the stealthy side of things instead of guns a blazing style gameplay.



    I appreciate your critique on my FPS prowess or lack thereof. You're right - I'm pretty bad at them, but I have fun - that is what's important to me. This is why I typically stay out of the competitive arena for more skill individuals (perhaps, like yourself) to enjoy themselves in.

    Might I offer a little insight? I would hate for you to be ignorant.

    I am a volunteer - like most of the staff here. It just so happens that I enjoy video games and writing. While it seems like a glorious existence and that we must be paragons of the gaming, none of us claim expert status nor do we have the luxury of specializing on specific genres of games. Events like this provide a limited exposure to the content at hand. In this case, it was 90 minutes of hands on play with only 50 of that being recorded content. Not a lot of time for mastery when you are taking in game systems, noting mechanics, and critiquing the delivery of all of the elements.

    As a volunteer, the time to fly out to this event, write and record a script, sift through relevant video clips, and edit it down is all on whatever spare time I have - sometimes that's a lunch break. And I freely offer that to you and I do it gladly - for the love of the medium. You don't have to like what I present to you or how the content is presented. You're entitled to your opinion.

    Yes, there is a benefit of writing reviews and attending events like this that can be involved (i.e. travel/meal/event coverage, access to games/hardware), but it is voluntary all the same. My family and my full time job pay the price in the finite resource of my time for me to be away in order to provide content... and I am not alone in that. The management of MMORPG.com tirelessly provides a platform for people who have a love for games and a desire to share that joy with people.

    We may not be the best and I don't ask that you to withdraw your opinion, but I would encourage you to consider this information.

    You are now no longer ignorant. May you be judged as with the same measure that you use on others.

    You know what, I apologize if my comments came off as being an asshole.  I didn't mean it by any means, I am just surprised of the skill level of some of these "reviewers", hell even some developers skill level surprises me when they're horrible at their own game.  I'm just surprised is all.  Didnt mean any harm by it.

    You know you have to play games differently when formally reviewing than when you can cut loose and just ignore everything around you. Instead of thinking about the perfect headshot I'm thinking, "Hmm, scoping in feels a lot like Destiny, or movement feels like DOOM."

    I've recorded sessions for reviews before but never liked any of the play enough to publish them with it. I think it's pretty challenging to make gameplay look interesting, not do a bunch of screwups, and also kick ass at the same time.

    I did that with DUSK and when I got done with the first few videos I was like, whew, that's boring. Then the next few I made a bunch of mistakes that made the flow clunky. Those are things we don't realize when we're in the action. It's a lot more exciting to play than watch.

    I felt that way too until Primal. That was a nice departure. Hoping this one is the same.



    Primal was actually my favorite so far.

    The only Far Cry I could bare to play was Blood Dragon because it was actually original and fun. Change the ambient, still same ubisoft "map full with icons get up in that tower to reveal it".






    I forgot to mention this in the preview comments: towers are gone.



    What does that mean? There is now a proper save-anywhere system where you reload to where you saved, or do you reload in some "safe house" as typically happens in consoles?

    I'm pretty sure that the game autosaves, but I can't say with 100% certainty. My observation was that the game typically saved as you start missions. I could be wrong though. Saving wasn't really highlighted. 

    So, towers no longer exist for scouting the map. You gain information about locations by talking with people, reading road signs, etc.

    Yup, the "truth" is whichever version of reality conforms most comfortably to your own bias, lol



    And thanks to the wonders of the internet, finding "the real truth" is easier than ever before...



    neutral perspective is not taken either side an accepting them both equal even if you don't agree.

    were you both basing you ideals is usually when their a point were someone ( myself included ) want make a example they pick a side with their opinion, so it seem no one can be neutral even if overall they are indifferent to the debate.

    Exactly, we both love games!  And no worries man.

    From your play through, did you encounter any sort of stealth game play or hand to hand combat?  That's more of what I want to know about the game.  Every shooter can run an shoot but games that have stealth offer a unique style of play that's different than just running around shooting.

    Richard Ross... Anyone looking into his back ground, and contacts, will understand what is at play here. I can't say I'm surprised, given the times we live in. Other than that it looks like an interesting game.




    Care to elaborate?




    He's talking about Rick Alan Ross a cult expert and deprogrammer. Ross is Ubisoft's cult consultant for Far Cry 5 and I'm assuming Wraithone is intimating Ross's work against the Branch Davidians in Waco.

    Far Cry 5 With Rick Alan Ross, Dan Hay And Jean Sebastien Decent

    Far Cry 5 cult adviser reveals how these fanatics thrive: Follow the money




    That's an awesome consultant for such a game.

    Here's to hoping more video games reach out to such folks to help inform their narrative.








    The Waco Massacre is a highly controversial topic because the government basically found excuses to go in and kill 76 ton of people, including 25 children.


    This is also isnt meant to put the Davidians in a positive light.



    No, the government did NOT kill 76 people. The cultists killed themselves. Yes, I used the word "cultists" because that's what they were, a doomsday cult. It was a cult in every sense of the word and trying to excuse it because it was "christian" is an insult to the law enforcement agents who they murdered. You conveniently left out he fact the Davidians murdered four ATF agents who were conducting a lawful search of their property. Yet you say you aren't trying to put them in a positive light. All the evidence points to the Davidians setting the fire themselves, not the government. The only victims are the people David Koresh, leader of a self-proclaimed "Army of God", killed which included all his followers.
